Drunk Elephants: Russians and Their Vodka saved the day again…

The problem started when the two Indian elephants, owed by a traveling Polish circus, were transported from Novokuznetsk to Omsk on late Thursday, the hay in the trailer caught fire and the truck had to be stopped and the elephants were let loose.The trailer then burned down and the elephants were left stranded in the super freezing cold…

Since they were not hurt, the elephant handler made the animals jog so that they did not freeze to death. Meanwhile, the local cops and officials were alerted and the animals were moved into a heated garage nearby. Since the elephants had some frost bite on the ears and feet, they were served two cases of vodka mixed with warm water…

“They roared like it was the jungle…They must have been happy,” Said a district office helping to care for the elephants…

Vodka saved the day again…
